Vassily Ivanchuk and Anna Muzychuk from Ukraine have won the gold medals after three days of play at the FIDE World Rapid Championship in Doha, Qatar.
In the Women’s Tournament things were much less exciting. Anna Muzychuk simply was too dominating. After starting with 7.0/8 she finished the tournament with a draw, a win and two more draws – and that was enough to win the tournament with 9.5/12, a clear point ahead of Alexandra Kosteniuk who finished with 8.5/12 and won silver. Bronze went to Nana Dzagnidze who finished with 8.0/12.
